North Lincolnshire schools are celebrating their best ever results today, with 57 per cent of students achieving 5A*-C grades including English and Maths – an increase of 2.3 percentage points from last year’s validated results.

Brigg’s Sir John Nelthorpe School achieved the highest level of attainment in North Lincolnshire, with 73 per cent 5A*-C grades including England and Maths.

Also of particular note is Baysgarth School, which has had the biggest year-on-year improvement, having improved from 42 per cent in 2014 to 54 per cent this year.

The figures are provisional and will need to be formerly validated.

“This is fantastic news for North Lincolnshire and demonstrates the hard work that teachers, support staff, school leaders, governors and parents have invested in ensuring our young people achieve excellent results,” said Coun David Rose, cabinet member for Children’s Services at North Lincolnshire Council.

“In recent years, the council has invested millions of pounds to improve our secondary schools: creating exciting and stimulating learning environments which help students to achieve their very best.

“Congratulations to all out young people receiving their qualifications today – they have worked hard and it has paid off. GCSEs are a key milestone in their lives that will help pave the way for their future careers.”
